One or two chapters sought from U.S. practicing academic, public, school,

Successful proposals will address creative, practical, how-to chapters and
case studies depicting a variety of aspects and angles of the library
profession as a creative endeavor, within the library walls and beyond such as
being an artist, writer, photographer, editor. Ideas needed that can serve as
a foundation, incorporate into an MLIS course; a Human Resources’ or an
organizational plan, as well kick-start personal career goals planning. The
focus is on library staff professional and personal growth and development,
NOT creative programming and services for patrons. Request a helpful tentative
